Beautiful May

Spring!!  I love this weather.  Not too hot….

We’ve had wonderful rain.

The birds are singing…….

HA!  That was the best picture I’ve been able to capture of this little guy.  Cardinals… pretty.  And that was with the zoom!

I’m happy this week because I decided to keep these beautiful Johnson Brothers dishes.

I remembered them as being primarily blue and white, which are not my colors.  When I unpacked them, thinking that I would clean them up and get them ready to sell, I was pleasantly surprised to find that they blended so well with all of my colors.

I was also happy that I decided to keep this beautiful bird dish with lid.  It is so detailed.  These were my Mother’s and I’ve had them packed away while I tried to make a decision. 

Everything kind of set the Springtime bird theme for my hutch.

I threw in a few bright colored eggs and added a little yellow for a pop of Spring color.

I was able to use all of the cups and saucers by stacking them.  I can’t believe that I ever considered getting rid of them.  It’s a wonderful set with sugar and creamer, veggie bowl, salt & pepper, and even a coffee pot!

So……that’s my Spring hutch!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

  1. It's a beautiful set, Denise! I think it's sometimes a good idea to pack things up and then bring them out again about six months later. Sometimes we can look at them with a new and different eye. I think they look great in your hutch with all the little details you added in!

  2. Today was a beatiful Oklahoma day, wasn't it Denise? These dishes are beautiful! Your hutch looks great!

  3. That black and white photo is adorable!!!

  4. So pretty love all the dishes!! Thanks so much for the nice comments you left about Belle. As to you question about bullies ours doesnt at all and my sister has a male and he doesnt either. I think that's a bad rap they have. They also have a bad rap about gas issues if you feed them really good dog food they don't have that problem either. We also use Belle to breed she has had two litters and we sell them nationwide. If youre ever interested let me know we usually have a litter around Christmas time. Have a good weekend.

  5. You can never go wrong with Johnson Bros! Beautiful!

  6. Denise, your dishes are absolutely beautiful... and love the hutch it looks great with all of your pretty treasures displayed from it!
    hugs~~~ Daphne

  7. Hi Denise! I just absolutely love your dished and think they look perfect in your gorgeous hutch. :-) It all looks wonderfully Spring-y and we are so glad you shared it with us at Inspiration Friday this week!

  8. Those dishes are darling! I could stare at the gorgeously dressed hutch all day :D

  9. Denise,
    I love your hutch and how you arranged it. I am lovin' the cups stacked up like that. It is really cute. I also love any Johnson Brother's pattern. That is my main pattern too. Thanks for linking it up!

  10. Love these dishes! so glad you kept them, they look beautiful in your cupboard. Thanks for linking up to VIF, Denise. xoxo Debra
